Our Mission / Objective

Caring for you

We provide award-winning healthcare across the entire lifespan – from pre-birth, newborn babies and children, to the aged, their families and carers.

Our specialties include paediatrics (caring for children), cardiology (caring for the heart), women’s health, kidney and pancreas transplants and intensive care for sick and preterm babies in the first few weeks and months of life.

Our hospitals include Monash Medical Centre Clayton, Monash Medical Centre Moorabbin, Dandenong Hospital, Casey Hospital, the Kingston Centre and the Cranbourne Centre, and our Monash Health Community service provides an extensive array of allied health services supporting patients in recovery and the prevention of ill-health.

We turn scientific discoveries into clinical practice

From Australia’s first major heart valve replacements, to preventing unborn babies from developing cerebral palsy and the use of botox to help severe asthmatics breath, we are involved in hundreds of research projects and programs aimed at improving clinical care.

Science and research is the future and wherever possible our patients access the latest treatments at their bedside.

Our Services

We provide more than 250 uniquely integrated community and hospital based services focusing on improving the health of our community through

  • prevention
  • early intervention
  • community-based treatment and rehabilitation
  • highly specialised surgical and medical diagnosis,
    treatment and monitoring services
  • hospital and community based mental health services

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Making a bequest to your local hospital through your estate is a wonderful way of making a significant gift to an organisation providing vital health care to your community.

Of course, your immediate family should always be the first ones you consider when dividing up your estate, but setting aside some money for your local hospital is easy to do.

Talk to your solicitor or trustee company. Take our bequest brochure to your meeting with them. It has helpful information. Please contact: 03 9594 2700 to obtain one.

General Donations

Support your local hospital

The Monash Health Foundation nurtures and encourages philanthropic support for exceptional healthcare at Monash Health.

We work hard to raise funds for projects, initiatives and equipment over and above what would normally be expected to be provided. The Foundation does not fund items considered standard operating costs.

Funds raised create outcomes beyond the normal every day activities of the health service.

Put simply, the Foundation aims to fund:

  • New medical technology
  • Medical Research
  • Additional staff salaries, scholarships and training opportunities
  • Patient and Family centred care initiatives

Community support is essential and we are ever grateful for the wonderful generosity of those around us.

Help us expand our lifesaving work.
